Thank goodness for that. Right, this is my first post and I would like some info on Skysurfing.
I have read the Corebook and the Crazes book but am still at a loss as how to properly run a supersurf.
The core rule book says that all citizens’ skills are class skills, but on the citizen sheet at the back, it also says that craze is not a class skill. Do you buy them at cross-class price or regular price?
A level 5 citizen, dex 15, can have 8 craze (skysurfing) ranks and once you’ve added on the Skill focus and the dex mod, he’ll have a craze (skysurfing) modifier of +12. So this means he needs an 8 or more on the D20 for a DC20 pass?
When he then becomes a Supersurf Champion Prestige (and I assume the Champion Feat is automatically taken, rather than waiting for the next overall class feat bonus), do you use the Supersurf Champion Level (which will be one) rather than the character level (which will be 6) to add to the craze (skysurfing check)?
Does this mean that at Citizen 8/Champion 5 (guntz holtz) could conceivably have 16 levels of craze (skysurfing) skill, +2 for skill focus, +4 dex mod, +5 for being a level five champion and therefore a total skill modifier of +27? I must have got that wrong because Guntz has a skill modifier of only 14, but still at least 10 craze ranks.
So assuming a character at one point fails a DC, does he then get to try a power roll to avoid the incident or does the DC assume he is power rolling anyway? Can he try Improved Power Roll (if he has it) instead or as well and does he get to try a reflex save (or again, is that only if he has Avoid Collision feat)? Are there rules for mass pile-ups adding to DCs of following riders? Is a following rider someone who hasn’t passed as many DCs to date?
I have the old Citadel Surfer minis, look forward to buying the Foundry ones too and would like to able to make races visual/more visual.
Sorry if I’m being a pain, or thick, but I haven’t played a D20 game yet and am finding all the info becoming a little confused in my small brain.
